Draft Scout Leonard Hankerson News
11/05/14 - WR Leonard Hankerson's rookie season of 2011 ended after just four games because of a hip injury that required surgery. The receiver's third season ended with a torn ACL and LCL in Week 10. On Tuesday, 13 days shy of a year since he ripped up his left knee in Philadelphia, Hankerson was activated from the physically unable to perform list.
"I haven't played in a year so (during the bye week), I'm going to work: running routes and doing all the things I can," Hankerson said. "I feel good. I'm 100 percent. I've been doing everything, no setbacks."
At 6-feet-2, Hankerson is two inches taller than any of Washington's other six receivers, but how much playing time he'll remains a big question since rookie Ryan Grant (five), speedster Aldrick Robinson (one) and former starter Santana Moss (zero) combined for just six catches during the first nine games.
11/04/14 - WR Leonard Hankerson was activated from reserve/physically unable to perform by the Redskins Tuesday (Nov. 4). Hankerson (6-2, 211) was originally selected by the Redskins in the third round (79th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft. He has appeared in 30 career games with 14 starts, recording 81 receptions for 1,081 yards and six receiving touchdowns.
10/22/14 - WR Leonard Hankerson is hoping to begin his season soon. Hankerson tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee last season during a Nov. 17 game at Philadelphia and his rehabilitation process continued well into the summer.
Washington put Hankerson on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list to start the season and he has continued working his way back from the injury. Now, he feels he's ready to play again after returning to practice last week. But he must be added to the active 53-man roster first and Washington has. "No soreness in the knee at all," Hankerson said. "I feel good out there, I'm out there running around. I don't feel like I missed a beat with 11 months off. ... No doubt at all I could (play against Dallas)."
10/15/14 - WR Leonard Hankerson tore the ACL and LCL in his left knee last season, and returned to practice on Wednesday with hopes of being activated at some point soon.
"It's been a long time," said Hankerson, who started seven of the 10 games in which he was healthy and caught 30 passes for 375 yards and three touchdowns in 2013, his third NFL season. "I can't complain about the six weeks (on the in-season physically unable to perform list). It flew by. I'm ready to go. I've been (catching balls) every day the last couple of months."
Coach Jay Gruden believes Hankerson is "on track" to be activated rather than miss the rest of the season.
Gruden added that he was "very impressed" with the receiver, saying the 6-foot-2, 211-pound Hankerson, who brings "a little bit of a different presence, a bigger guy."
10/13/14 - WR Leonard Hankerson and DE Stephen Bowen, each of whom has been on the physically unable to perform list all season while recovering from knee surgery, will return to practice this week. Washington will have three weeks to decide whether to activate either player or place them on season-ending injured reserve.
